Wishbone Pet Rescue manages the Allegan County Animal Shelter at a very low cost of support from Allegan County. Wishbone provides the only medical program this shelter has ever had. Wishbone needs to raise over $150,000 in order to run the animal shelter as a no-kill facility.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Sausage was brought from a hoarding situation to the Allegan Animal Shelter that Wishbone manages. Dogs had been living outside in exercise pens. They had no shelter and were overcrowded in the enclosures. Sausage needed full vaccines and several rounds of parasite control. He also developed Demodex folliculorum mites around his eyes, which has required special medication. You can meet Sausage here.
